We are all just waiting to see how everything comes out in the wash after the pandemic tapers off and leaves us in our new normal. How will travel, the job market or schools look in the future? How will our daily lives and habits changes? With our total reliance on the digital world to communicate, work and even order food, what impact will this have on businesses when regulations lift and we can move freely again?
One change businesses weren’t expecting was the toll remote work and the pandemic would take on all elements of the operation, maintenance and scalability of their IT infrastructure.
To combat these increasingly stress-inducing issues is the deployment of a hyperconverged infrastructure and a move to the cloud. Recent research show that HCI deployment is accelerating at a rapid pace, as the pandemic-business environment lingers for an indeterminate amount of time. CEO of Pure Storage, Charlie Giancarlo, shared his personal struggle lately saying, “I contracted COVID-19 in mid-March, and that experience has provided me with a deep personal appreciation for this virus and its impact. The changes in people's lives and livelihoods are truly extraordinary. And our expectations of what is or will be normal are forever changed. Every day, each new report on the crisis brings an uneasy mixture of anxiety, uncertainty and hope about the future."
2019 saw an HCI market size of around $100 million and a CAGR of 20.11% - a clear indicator of things to come, even without the pandemic-related shift. As they monitor the HCI market in the light of COVID-inspired changes, a recent report from Technavio predicts that the HCI market will grow by $ 32.45 BN between 2020-2024. MarketWatch notes that key driving factors in this growth are the increased need for virtualization, necessary cost-cutting, demand for data protection and disaster recovery, and scalability. With China leading the way as one of the top four HCI growth contributors to the total market, it’s no surprise that companies like Sangfor Technologies are leading the way in the journey toward HCI deployment.
